Headquartered in Bellevue, WA, AskMe is the world’s leading provider of enterprise knowledge management solutions.
AskMe was using a legacy Private Branch Exchange (PBX) system. One of the cards on the system failed and the vendor of the legacy system declined to support the system. The vendor wanted to upgrade to a newer version of the PBX. The move to the newer system was turning out to be a costly proposition as the upgrade included new switching equipment. The challenge for the company was to either go ahead with the upgrade or look out for other options.
AskMe in search of options learned about VOIP-Connections from the web. They reached out to figure out how VOIP-Connections could meet the challenge that AskMe was facing with our Hosted PBX solution.
VOIP-Connections presented a demo to AskMe the very next day and impressed the decision making team with the benefits of their Hosted PBX solution. The solution was not only cost effective but also provided AskMe with all the features of the legacy PBX and more. After weighing costs and benefits of our solution, AskMe decided to move forward with the implementation of new system by VOIP-Connections.
Benefits of the new system are profound. Once implemented, new IP phones were installed and configured to connect to the Hosted PBX servers. All the existing numbers were ported to the hosted PBX. For the end users entire operation was completely transparent and they had a new phone system that was not only cost effective but also had more features than legacy phone systems.
The following Table depicts the comparison between the features of the previous Legacy PBX system at AskMe with the features of the new Hosted PBX system.
|Feature||Legacy PBX||Hosted PBX|
|Operational Costs||High||60% Less|
|Voice Mail to E-Mail||Not Available||Available|
|Scalability||Fixed and Finite||High|
